Funny you should mention spiders. I was placing my flaps on the brackets this week and spotted this one in my way.

Default Here I am!

Finally, after months of preparation and tons of documents, I arrived in the US on the beginning of August. Now that some of the most important things are done, I'm starting looking around for a good flight school.

I live in Cypress and I read good online reviews about "The Flight School Inc." at Weiser Airpark that is just a couple of miles away from my home. Any feedback on this school?
Any other suggestion?

Default The Flight School

I also live in Cypress a couple miles from Wieser. I learned to fly there back in the 90's before the flight school changed its name. I would say that it is a very friendly place, the whole airport is very friendly. The flight school won the AOPA recommended flight school award 2 years running, if you learn to fly there you will be a master of cross wind landings as the prevailing winds are north/south while the runway east/west 09-27.
There are 4 RV's, on the field including mine.
Good Luck in your search.

I grew up in Houston once upon a time. I hope you like heat, humidity, mosquitoes, traffic, and cockroaches. The summers are very hot, the winters surprisingly cold, but the other two weeks of the year are fine.

The people are lots better than the above, of course!

:-)

Jim, thank you for the information. I'll manage to go there in person to give look.

Ed, heat and humidity are terrible...I hope I'll get used to them asap! Not so many mosquitoes so far (at least, not so many more than I'm used to in south Italy) and just found only one cockroach
